      Okay. Dive. Just say we tried and got the result we wanted... Every team, every player would likely do that. Try for a pen and then the goal.

      Agreed  ;D

      Excellent win, it's great to thrash a team or otherwise win comfortably but sometimes, the most satisfying victories are when you snatch it in the dying moments of a match. Milner as usual with ice in his veins, Mane with yet another brilliant goal.

      We've built up an excellent foundation for the rest of the season, I can't see this team dropping as many points as we did last time around.

      Looking at the penalty, I'm sure Mane has his toe stepped on too, and that is when he goes down, and that is the "delay" in him going down.

      Anyone else think the same?

      Even if it was a blatant dive by Mane and a complete cock up by VAR it would still only feel like karma for the penalty we didn’t get last season and the way Maguire scored after he should have been sent off.

      Its all opinions rightly or wrong. Some are based on having rose tinted glasses on. However, a dives a dive, that was a dive if your not wearing the glasses  :f_tongueincheek:

      Not so.

      A dive is where the player fakes contact and dives to the floor in an attempt to fool the ref.

      In this case, Mane has felt contact, he has been impeded by contact, and the only debate is whether he then went to the floor to win the penalty (which was due) or whether he was knocked to the floor by the contact.

      Either way it is a penalty.

      The question is, would the ref have called it if Mane carried on and then messed up his pass to Lallana because of the foul? Possibly not. By going down, Mane forced the ref to make a decision on the foul.

      Penalty all day long, Mane raises his right foot to cross the ball and defender goes into his standing leg

      I don't think it was a dive, I think the guys stud has pressed through Mane's boot tongue (area, do boots still have them?), and when he's lifted off, Mane goes down. Thus a Pen.

      Don't forget Alli's dive to bring Spurs back to 2-2, as well.

      I don’t think it was a dive either. Fact of the matter is there was contact so why shouldn’t he go down. What constitutes a penalty because Mane was taken out against Sheffield United in the box but nothing was given, Matip was near on choke-slammed in the box vs Newcastle but nothing was given. About time something did go our way in the box this season. Albrighton shouldn't have tried to hook the ball away once Mane stole it from him. Albrighton was nowhere near getting the ball but did make contact with Mane’s ankles so I’m not sure what there is even to question.

      See the muppets on MOTD saying Klopp only complained about the foul on Salah to deflect away from the penalty. Madness the rubbish some come out with.

      If they want to see a dive then look at the Napoli player who done a springboard impression against us to get a penalty. Or look at the precious Harry Kane.

      Surly the point is VAR look for contact and is that contact enough to prevent Mane from progressing The reaction after contact in this case was slightly exaggerated. We can all see that but the contact knocked him forward. Mane then was off balance due to the contact from behind. He did eaxggerate the fall but that is not what VAR ruled on. The Ref could see the contact and VAR confirmed it.

      It was a bit naughty of Rodgers to intimate that Mane dived.He should know what VAR rules on. If there was no contact then Mane would be booked.

      Mane has been fouled in the area a number of times already this season and got nothing. Mane does not dive or go down in the area WITHOUT contact.

      On the Mane's overall performance.In terms of energy and determination he was fantastic. Not just in attack, in defence as well. He's been overshadowed a bit by Salah but he is so strong and fit and determined to fight for the team. 9/10 at least.

      Rubbish to call it a dive. A dive is where no contact occurs.

      Secondly it’s a tackle from behind in the box where contact is made.

      And lastly, players wouldn’t have to go down and exaggerate contact if the refs in our league had any balls and called a foul regardless of the reaction of the fouled player. They all want ‘fair play’ but you get punished for staying in your feet because the refs are cowards.

      Mane was excellent, MOTM for sure. He's going to be our player of the season, I reckon.

      As for Mo's injury, according to Maddock initial checks suggested that his injury wasn't serious. Luckily he has two weeks off now.
